Bollywood actors Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi welcomed their first child- a baby girl, on Sunday in Mumbai. According to Neha’s publicist, both mother and daughter “are doing great.”
The Mumbai Mirror reported that Neha delivered the baby around 11 am at a private hospital in Mumbai’s Khar area.
Moreso, a friend of the couple told the Mirror that both Neha and he are ecstatic.
“Neha’s family was present at the hospital during the delivery while Angad’s parents are expected to reach Mumbai from Delhi on Sunday night or by Monday morning. The new parents are yet to zero down on the name for their daughter but have a few options handy. Their close friend Soha Ali Khan, along with husband Kunal Kemmu, visited Neha as soon as the news broke,” the source shared.
Celebrity friends of the couple, including Sophie Chaudhry, Karan Johar and Sania Mirza took to social media to congratulate them.
The couple, who tied the knot in a private ceremony in New Delhi in May, confirmed the news of their pregnancy in August when Neha began to show. The couple had wed in a private ceremony raising speculations that Neha was in the family away.
And in a recent appearance on wife’s radio show, No Filter Neha, Bedi confirmed the rumours and recalled how he broke the news of Neha’s pregnancy to her parents. Angad shared that sharing the news with Neha’s parents was nothing short of dramatic and that her parents were livid with anger. However, they wanted the couple to settle down for quite a while and liked Angad, so they agreed to go ahead with the marriage. He added that their wedding was planned within four days, leaving little time for preparations.
Much like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Neha was busy with her work till the very last day. In a recent interview, Neha had shared that she kept news of her pregnancy a secret for fear of losing work.
“I was worried people would stop offering work. It was a good thing my bump wasn’t showing till the sixth month because appearances matter here, and one might be assumed to be unfit for a job. Fortunately, my energy levels are high,” she had said.
